Are you referring to that awesome Montana team that got their pants kicked by a
4 and 10 Nevada team? Just checking. The big sky is nothing special, at least
not any more special than the WAC. In basketball or football. I would concede
that Montana's football team is better than USU's, but not much. Of course we
will never know for sure because they are to afraid to move up and try making it
with in the big show. Anyways, USU will never drop down a division in football
so every body might as well drop that argument.
What is the WAC? Every school is running away from the conference. Utah State
leading or winning the conference title is silly. What the Aggies need to get
into is the Big Sky, and then they can play Montana and Montana State, one of
which defeated UCLA BB and the other nearly did. USU football and other sports
do not compete. Really the Aggies should go NAIA and cut down on expenses.
There is no amount of money available to be competitive at the national level in
Division 1. It is an embarrassment. Pretty soon the WAC is going to be the MWC
I too have thought the team has lacked a little luster this year. I'm glad we're
13-2 and 2-0 but the play hasn't been as dominant as I expected from a heavy
senior team. Hopefully some really hard practices will whip em into shape. They
will need a little more toughness for the upcoming road trip.
Atta boy, Stew!
Coach Morrill put in to words what I have been trying to say all season long.
Basketball is doing great but they are kind of sluggish. The holiday break has
not been good for them. Glad Morrill lit a "fire under [their]
butts," or they would have lost the game. Aggies need to step up. I know
they can do it!
I'm starting to think that Tai and the gang are becoming a little too lax in
their playing. They shouldn't let a now 13-2, 2-0 record get to their heads.
On a positive note, Aggies were able to make a great comeback thanks once again
to Stew Morrill and his impressive ability to rally his troops. Go Aggies!
